#roboweek – MAKE/MakerBot 3D printer giveaway

Win a MakerBot! Becky writes

To celebrate (one last time) the success of our Desktop Manufacturing issue of MAKE, we’ve teamed up with the folks at MakerBot Industries. We’re going to be giving away a CupCake CNC, in the first ever official MakerBot CupCake CNC giveaway and Thingiverse design challenge! One lucky 3D designer will win a Deluxe CupCake CNC kit for his/her contribution to Thingiverse, and five runners up will receive something special too! Here’s what you do to enter:

  1. Imagine something you’d like to see printed on a MakerBot CupCake CNC!
  2. Design your object using any 3D design software you like.
  3. Upload your design to Thingiverse!
  4. Share the link to your Thingiverse post here, in the comments, by May 5th, 2010 at noon PDT.

Don’t have the design chops? Share your idea for a 3D-printable object (step 1 only) in the comments below to still be eligible to win one of five “Poor Person’s 3D Fabbing” prize packs each including:

Only those who upload a 3D design to Thingiverse and share the link here are eligible to win the grand prize of a CupCake CNC Deluxe Kit.


Enter as many times as you like, but you can only win one prize. Although we’ll allow you to submit Things you’ve already designed/posted, we highly encourage you to make something new for the challenge! Winners will be announced on May 12.
